As previously promised Android 2.2 is coming in over the air updates to the EVO 4G, This over the air update began just a few hours ago. It also comes with a flashlight app included in the ROM 🙂
The Original Verizon Droid Smartphone Getting Android 2.2 Over The Air Update This Week, Missing Features.
This is the week that the original Droid will be getting the Android 2.2 update, but it looks like that update won’t be bringing two of the most oft-requested features: tethering and a mobile hotspot. Why’s that? While tethering seems to be simply due to a lack of an app that “isn’t part of this update,” the mobile hotspot issue is a bit more curious — Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney says that the Droid “doesn’t have [the] hardware to support a mobile hotspot.” No further explanation than that, but we have a sneaking suspicion that Motorola and Verizon aren’t passing over the feature because of a lack of hardware, but because of too much hardware — namely, the Droid 2 and Droid X.
Googles mobile phone operating system Android is quickly taking over the united states marketplace as the number one mobile operating system used on smartphones. Sales of the Android operating system are up 866% from the second quarter of 2009 and sales are not slowing.
Summary: The Droid X and the Droid 2 are identical in hardware specifications such as CPU / Memory / GPU (Graphics) however the Droid 2 has a slide out keyboard which the Droid X does not have and the Droid X has an 8MP camera VS’s the Droid 2’s 5MP camera also the Droid X is 0.6 inches larger than the Droid 2 yet it has the same screen resolution, My choice would certainly be for the Droid 2 but the Droid X will certain appeal to some people over the Droid 2.
